    Default who says buying a car is easy.......

    had a 1.7di corsa, alloys exhaust etc, really nice apart from the steering pump was starting to fail. Was advised to get rid.

    went to my local vx dealer, they found me a 1.7dti astra for 4k.

    they got the car ready for me, I turned up only to find that they had knackered the alternator by pressure washing the engine.

    they then ordered a new part, for it to be there in 4 days.

    I drove the corsa home while I waited, but because i had already sold the corsa to them, I was nervous driving it.

    they understood and gave me an 06 1.6 sxi astra as a courtesy car (v.nice).

    When I picked the car up, I then found the car has done more than 7000 miles more than they had originally said. They offered me a free service as a sorry.

    Then because they had given the courtesy car back, I had to drive the 02 astra home.

    I got on to the A14 and the car started to misfire, I turned round and told him, I also told him that I didn't want to car.

    They gave me the 06 astra back, and I told them to find me a diesel vectra (b or c) for 4k. a week and a half later they still hadn't found one, even though there are loads.

    They then found me an 02 2.2dti sxi vectra c and they knocked £400 off the asking price, I thought sod it, I'll have it.

    I'm getting to love it, as borat would say - its nice......

    its going back for a new cim though on tuesday, also they have remapped it and its now not as quick as it was, going to sort though.

    thanks for reading and sorry the story is so long.
